The Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine offers two independent residencies and many fellowship programs within the Mount Sinai Health System.
Anesthesiology Residency at The Mount Sinai Hospital:
The Anesthesiology Residency at The Mount Sinai Hospital is led by Program Director, Adam Levine, MD, and Residency Director, Alan Sim, MD. The program continues to receive consecutive accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and accepts 26 residents per year in an integrated four-year program. All of the ACGME-required rotations occur at The Mount Sinai Hospital, which is the main campus for our program. The Mount Sinai Hospital is a 1,200-bed academic medical center where we perform more than 65,000 anesthetics annually as well as nearly 8,000 deliveries, of which one-third are high-risk. Our diverse patient population comes from some of the richest and some of the poorest communities in the city as well as from around the tri-state area, country, and the world. As a resident, you are involved with all aspects of peri-operative care, from pre-operative testing clinic through the operating room/interventional radiology suites/obstetrics floor, to the post-operative pain management service and intensive care units.

Medical Student Education:
In achieving our academic goals, the Department is involved in student education
throughout all four years of the medical school curriculum. We offer a clinical clerkship and electives for both medical students at The Icahn School of Medicine and visiting students.
As the curriculum evolves along with today’s discoveries and advances, the Department looks forward to continued involvement in the education of medical students.
Anesthesiology Simulation Lab (HELPS Center):
Over the past two decades, the simulation team has developed and conducted innovative simulation-based education and assessment programs. The HELPS Center Program leads multidisciplinary educational activities for Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai students and postgraduate trainees. These include our extensive curriculum of basic science physiology laboratories, including anesthesiology, internal medicine, pediatrics, emergency medicine, critical care, and otolaryngology. The team has developed and conducted courses for critical care nurse practitioners and graduate students, and has been host to a variety of community-based services for local elementary, middle school, and high school students. The HELPS Center is also the site of one of the busiest MOCA 4.0 locations in the country.
Each year we lead a Clinical Update in Anesthesiology, Surgery, and Perioperative Medicine. This week long meeting includes internationally renowned faculty and attracts hundreds of international participants from around the world. We have also arranged numerous continuing education meetings in Europe and the Caribbean.
